News Flash: Steve and Jose of Other Sheep featured on "atv" Martinique

by Rev. Steve Parelli, August 6, 2012
Schoelcher, Martinique

At this link, select "Journal du 05 Août." The TV segment on Jose Ortiz and Steve Parelli begins at 7:02 (however, it appears you cannot fast forward).

The "Journal du 05 Août," according to reporters who made the interview with Parelli and Ortiz of Other Sheep, will be available for one week only.

It was aired last night twice here in Martinique: at 7:00 PM and 11:30 PM.

Parelli, who lived here in Martinique in 1970 (when he was 17) for four months with American missionaries, was told by an interested Martiniquean friend of 42 years who has watched the developments around Other Sheep's visit to Martinique, that evangelical Christians who know Parelli were taken back, but that the stone has been cast - that serious dialogue among evangelicals will have to follow at some point now that a familiar Christian face has been placed on the issue.

Parelli and Ortiz are in Martinique for two weeks. They are contacting pastors, laity and churches by phone, email, and in person. They are making a tour of the island by car distributing two writings to churches: one on Parelli's "ex-gay" experience and the second on what the Bible does and does not say about homosexuality. The papers, in French, are listed (and linked to) on the Other Sheep French-language resource page.

In addition to the TV news coverage, Parelli and Ortiz have been interviewed by a newspaper journalist and a radio news commentator. Both have stated that their respective news items should come out within the next few days.
